I told hubs to be extra careful with it. That if anyone breaks it, it needs to be me, cause the heartache will be deep and I'd hate to be angry at anyone but myself. He understood completely and was relieved to not have to handle it!!
It is however VERY sturdy. Gma must of nicked it many a time. I've whacked it on the lip of the granite countertop and nothing happened.....but I will stop trying my luck!
